Money Astrology: Other Indicators of Money and Abundance in your chart


Fortuna is the Roman goddess of fortune and of fate, and she is asteroid number 19 in the celestial chart. Fortuna represents the wheel of fortune.

Fortuna in mythology determined if a person’s luck would be good or bad, or a bit of both, since Fortuna is the one who spins the wheel of fortune. Fortuna is the symbol of the old maxim, “what goes around comes around,” and she shows us how we can be up one moment and down the next.

Our Fortuna placement also shows us how we view good luck and fate in general and perhaps where we may experience the highs and lows of abundance.

To find Fortuna in your chart use the extended chart selection in astro.com and add ’19’ to additional objects under the Manual Entry section.

Money Astrology: The Money Houses


There are a number of houses in the chart that give us insight into your money potential with the most significant being the 2nd and 8th house.

The 2nd House & Money

The second house rules possessions, resources and the ability to generate your own money. The 2nd house traverses one’s financial status, along with the attitudes and conditions that help or hinder it. If you want to dive into your money story – the 2nd house is the place to look.

Caroline Myss has written that the key to your power in the world – or lack of it – lies in the 2nd house.

Being a succedent house the role of the 2nd house is to support the themes of the 1st house – your identity. The second house is everything that you call “mine”.

The 2nd rules both what money can buy (possessions and material resources) and what it can’t buy (talents, self-esteem, and values).

The second house concerns your wealth, whether you will be rich or poor; it concerns all your movable goods (whilst immovable property should be considered from the fourth house) and your safety and security. It also represents basic necessities.

The second house reveals your ability to handle money as well as your earning potential It can also show what talents may bring wealth.

If you’re unhappy in your career, the work you’re doing may not utilize your natural talents–described by the collection of sign and planets in and ruling your 2nd house.

Your 2nd house requires focus, and you have to get real in this house and do something with what you find there. You need to learn how to use, protect, and manage its resources.

The 2nd house is critical within business astrology particularly for entrepreneurs as it tells the story of your ability to generate money from your strengths and resources.

Look to your 2nd house sign and any planets there for more information about your ability to generate resources and your natural talents.

The 8th House & Money

The 8th house in Astrology is a succedent one and is ruled by the zodiac sign of Scorpio and planet Pluto. It is considered the house of sex, power, of other people’s money, death and rebirth. It also rules the occult, magic and mysticism and other transformative experiences.

The eighth house rules money accumulated through partnership or marriage and more generally other people’s money so think inheritance, debt, taxes, inheritances, joint finances (spouse/partner) and loans.

This house is on an axis with the 2nd house (exact opposite house) and is an axis of money (2nd – your money; 8th – other people’s money).

The 8th house rules the spouse’s resources, and observing the planets located inside can show the financial situation of the significant other that you will bond with.

Inheritances and gifts are to be seen here too and the 8th house shows what we receive when other people die or transform. These gifts can be karmic and the universe balancing the odds in our favour.

It can indicate the way you will die, or your experiences connected with death and tt can indicate deaths of other close people.

However, don’t be concerned about death when you observe the 8th house, as it mostly refers to symbolic death, transformation and endings.

Look to your 8th house sign and any planets there for more information about your shared finances, potential inheritance and involvement with other people’s money.

Hello beautiful people of Expansive Capacity! Happy Woo-Woo Wednesday!

This month, in support of our deep dive on Your Relationship with Desire, we’re going to look at your chart ruler.

Chart Ruler Astrology

Yep, there’s a planet that’s “in charge” in many ways. Knowing which planet that is — and what that planet is known for desiring — can go a long way in helping us understand the root of many of our desires.

Neat, huh?

Grab your chart, as rendered in the Free Horoscopes/Natal Chart, Ascendant menu item at Astro.com (I have a walk-thru on how to do that in this PDF).

As usual, I offer up my chart as an example for where to look for things on your own chart. Here goes:

Click to enbiggen.

We’re looking for the letters AC out on the edge of the chartwheel that would match where the 9 is on an analogue clock. You can also see the letters AC in the far-left table filled with all the glyphs and numbers. Finally, AC is also at the very bottom of the staircase table as well.

It’s all telling you the same thing: The sign of your Ascendant. AC. Sometimes ASC. AKA your Rising! 🙂

This is literally the point of the horizon from which the sun would rise on the day of your birth. This is why we need the exact time and place of your birth. (Well, it’s one of the reasons we need that.)

So, each sign is ruled by a different planet.

Click through on that for the Café Astrology planetary rulership map (traditional; yes, there is a modernized version, but there are some very compelling reasons to stick with traditional rulers… so we will).

Using the sign you identified as your Rising (remember, you’re looking for AC on the chartwheel or in the tables), look at the rulership map to determine which planet is associated with your Rising sign. For me — Libra Rising — that’d be Venus!

Congratulations! You’ve identified my chart ruler! 🙂 And now yours, right?

So, what does our chart ruler have to do with how we navigate life? A LOT. In our Aligned Advantage membership over the next few months, we’ll be digging in on the condition of your ruling planet (is it exalted or in domicile? In detriment or in fall? Can it SEE your 1st house, therefore doing a good job of keeping an eye on things there? Is it on your chart’s “team”? Is it a benefic? A malefic? And if it is either of those, is it in its greatest power or in a weakened state?)

Heading back to my awesome PDF (from my FREE series “What Your Birthday Says About You”), I want you to scroll to the section about the planets and get the general idea about your ruling planet. What’s its primary focus?

Just knowing that THIS is the color of the lenses in your sunglasses should open up some really interesting thoughts about your needs, wants, and desires.

As a Libra, my ruling planet is Venus, and that means if it’s not lining up with my values, the things I value, beauty, how I see beauty in the world, or LOVE in all forms, I’m not into it. Sure, I’ll pay that parking ticket because I have to… but as for what I DESIRE? It’s all inextricably tied to my values and my heart and soul.

Now you!

Share in the comments of this month’s deep-dive in the dojo where it is that your desires come from, at least in the planetary sense. 😉 We’ll of course unpack the more pragmatic part of the things you crave in this month’s Zoom. Have you registered for that Zoom yet? Please take care of that little detail because *I* desire spending time with you on the 25th, and of course I’m always filled with glee for the way our discussion elevates this work beyond all expectations.

Sending you so much love,

Enoughness is an inside job… and sometimes you need a guide to find your way there. Let Bonnie Gillespieget you started.
